Was Tiger Woods simply headed to the local convenience store for some mustard relish when he inadvertently backed into a fire hydrant, hit a tree, and had to be rescued from his vehicle by his golf club-wielding wife? (Actual events may vary). The truth may never be known; Tiger’s strategy seems to be to stay secluded in his home until the bark of the damaged tree grows back.
Several sources are reporting, of course, that there was some sort of domestic altercation that led to Tiger’s Wild Ride, and that wife Elin Nordegren may have went after his vehicle with a golf club, distracting him enough to cause him to crash.
Now Radar.com has a story today that the two had been arguing all through Thanksgiving night, and Tiger had stormed out, yelling “You’ve ruined our Thanksgiving! Are you happy now?”
A neighbor of Tiger’s told RadarOnline.com, “Everything has to be perfect for Tiger. Something at home must have upset him. I think he was probably just furious about something, got in that big Escalade and drove off.”
The source who spoke to RadarOnline.com confirmed that Tiger’s wife was upset about reports that he had been unfaithful and that the argument grew more intense as the night got later, leading Tiger to leave the house.
The National Enquirer reported recently that Woods was having an affair with New York club hostess Rachel Uchitel; which she denies. This, supposedly, led to the argument with his wife.
Hey, none of this should be taken as absolute fact, of course. But there are few things in life more suspicious than the fire hydrant-tree-smashed rear window trifecta at 2:30 in the morning. You expect people not to ask questions?
Speaking of that, Fox Sports has “20 questions about Tiger Woods’ accident,” including No. 7, “If Uchitel does file a defamation lawsuit against the Enquirer, is that a good or bad thing for Woods?”
My vote: Very bad. Tiger wants muchly for this whole thing to go away; something that definitely wont happen if Gloria Allred and Nancy Grace are involved.
